Trump bizarrely claims ‘many’ federal workers want to go without paychecks until he gets his wall

Published

on

On Christmas morning, President Donald Trump held a press conference at the White House. The President has said that he will forgo his usual holiday trip to Florida until the government shutdown is resolved.

Yet, the shutdown stems from the President’s demand for funding for a border wall. Democrats have so far refused to budge on the issue.

At the press conference, President Trump claimed that the thousands of federal workers who are currently without pay also want a wall and are willing to go without compensation until funding for the wall is secured.

“Many of those workers have said to me, communicated, stay out until you get the funding for the wall,” he said.

“These federal workers want the wall.”

It’s not clear which federal workers are trading their pay in exchange for the wall.

Earlier on Friday, in an interview with NPR, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was still not in favor of impeaching Trump.

CNN analyst and New York Times contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali wondered what -- if anything -- could result in Speaker Pelosi backing impeachment.

CNN’s Jim Acosta busts Trump’s whistleblower lies: ‘Just not answering questions in a straightforward fashion’

Published

on

CNN's Jim Acosta busted several falsehoods in President Donald Trump's remarks from the Oval Office about a whistleblower complaint filed against him by an intelligence official.

The president answered questions about the complaint, which appears to center on a phone call he made to the Ukrainian president, during a White House news conference with Australian prime minister Scott Morrison.

"He did not really answer the question whether or not he spoke with the Ukranian prime minister about former Vice President Joe Biden, at one point saying it doesn't matter what he discussed," Acosta said. "But there are plenty of contradictions here that the president offered up to reporters when he was sitting down in the Oval Office, at one point describing the whistleblower has being partisan and part of a hack job, but at the same time saying he doesn't know who the whistleblower is."
